Little Stuff

Been catching up on '24' through Netflix before the new season starts on the 15th. However, in the meantime, I've been working on my Banff sweater, a charm quilt, Sister's choice quilt and the Wash-cloth-a-thon.

Banff sweater is just about to the point where I start reducing for the raglan yoke. A 24 inch length was just too short for me, so I've added an additional 3 inches. Although I really like this nubbly yarn, I found I have a tendency to get 'holes' because I'm not pulling the yarn tight enough. So, live and learn. I have to remake the January WashCloth - I need to use a smaller needle in order to get something square-like.

The charm quilt is the 1000 pyramids. I think I only have 600 pyramids. However, I wanted to get started on doing them just because I need to know how many of some colors I need to finish those sections. Amazingly, after all the warnings I've received from others, not a single bias edge was stretched. I'm sure happy about that! The Sister's Choice quilt is my leader-ender project. By the time I've finished the pyramids, I will also have finished half the Sister's Choice quilt!

Oooh! Can't wait to see a pic of Banff! That's a sweater that's been on my wish list for a long time, but just never got around to making it.
